The two-day Special Ministerial Meeting for Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) Review in Asia and the Pacific: Run Up to 2015 was over on Wednesday with a declaration to develop further efforts.

Indonesia's Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa in his closing remarks said that participants were very confident that the meeting has provided valuable inputs for the High Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the MDGs in New York next September.

Natalegawa highlighted some of the issues that in the next five years will demand collective attention to achieve the MDGs in 2015.

First, the challenges of the international community are more complex than ever.

Secondly, a global effort is needed to achieve the MDGs as a whole.

Furthermore, the noble goal can only be achieved through sincere cooperation and partnership among all stakeholders.

Following the closing, Sha Zukang, the United Nations under Secretary General for Economic and Social Affairs urged for immediate action in achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) target as the deadline of 2015 is closer.
